I had breast augmentation done in February of 2010.. In November of 2010 I noticed my left sat higher than my right and went to my doctor.


Doctor said I had grade 2 cc and to take vitamin e and massage.. It is a couple years later and I am probable a grade 3.. You can tell with my bra and a shirt on but definitely without the left sits higher. I am wondering if it has been too long now to do a closed capsulectomy.. I don't want to pay to get one side redone but I have read the possibility of popping it on my own is not good after a certain amount of time. Is the possibility of rupturing the implant greater than popping the capsule due to all the time that has passed in having it?? I do not even want to wear a swimsuit anymore and that is the whole reason I got the surgery.. After two kids I had no tissue at all and just wanted to wear a swimsuit...I'm really said over this and any help that doesn't require surgery would be appreciated.. Thank you :). P.S I am 450cc

You really should have an in person evaluation, without which we all just guessing.

From your description is sounds like you will need at least an open capsulotomy. A closed capsulotomy is not a procedure that most plastic surgeons I think would agree should not ever be (more)

Can not offer help without at least a posted photo. Plus everything has a cost or value so you should expect you will need revision surgery and a fee. (more)
